Agonis flexuosa ‘Burgundy’ – Willow Peppermint

The very dark purple foliage makes this an outstanding contrast plant in the garden. A reasonably tough and vigorous plant that makes a great feature or screen plant. It responds well to pruning, so can be clipped to shape. Best in a sunny spot in well drained soil. Feed with a good native fertiliser in spring and summer. Tolerates coastal conditions well. It is susceptible to myrtle rust in warm areas.
